Transparency time. I’m a nerd. I’ve been a nerd, I’m still a nerd. I’m a book reading, glasses wearing, teacher’s pet style nerd. I would like to be cool and sexy and hip – but alas as Lady Gaga says, “I was born this way,” and by this way, I mean NERD.
But this blog gives me the opportunity to do something awesome and that’s combine two non-human loves of my life – giving great gifts and finding awesome books. Hence this new addition to my blog.
Here are the books I’m loving and ready to wrap as gifts:
In other words, what about your friends…. cue the TLC 90s hit song.
I’m a single girl and I try not to forget about my girlfriends on Valentine’s Day (single or not). Because when it comes down to it, to paraphrase Charlotte from Sex and the City, girlfriends are often your soulmates.
“Maybe we can be each other’s soul mates. And then we can let men be just these great, nice guys to have fun with.” ~Charlotte, Sex & the City
If you ever suffered through the high school homeroom delivery of Valentine’s Day Grams and Carnations, then you know that it’s often your girlfriends who come to the rescue. So when it comes to “Galentine’s Day” I’m giving your permission to keep it “high school” and don’t leave your girls hanging!
It’s always great to receive something unexpected and this gift offers the perfect surprise. If you are planning to send a card (birthday or otherwise), consider adding a little untraditional twist because although I love to get a card with a cash or a check, I’m not opposed to jewelry!
You can pick up a simple (and flat) piece of jewelry on its own card from a local store – try Lou Lou or even Marshall’s or TJ Maxx. So just grab your greeting card and simply tape the jewelry card to the inside of the greeting card so that it doesn’t shake in the mail.
It’s simple and relatively inexpensive. Just don’t forget to add a little extra postage (just to be safe).
